What’s one unexpected thing you carry with you all day and all night?
I’m not sure if it’s unexpected, but I always carry face mist with me.

In your life and line of work, what makes a 24-hour foundation so important?
It’s important for me to have a 24-hour foundation because my schedule is so busy and I’m always traveling, so I don’t always have time to reapply my makeup. I love knowing when I do my make up in the morning that it is going to last all day.

What’s your favorite day-to-night makeup trick?
My favorite day to night make-up trick is to change my lip color. I love to wear nude during the day and then add a pop of color at night. 

If you could give your teenage self one piece of beauty advice what would it be?
I would have told myself to watch more YouTube make up tutorials. I did not know how to do my make up when I was younger!

If you could spend 24 hours in any city where would you go and what would you do?
Sydney, Australia! I’ve always wanted to go there and play with kangaroos.

If you could give your teenage self one piece of beauty advice what would it be?
To eat whole foods instead of processed foods! This is the ONE rule I follow that has really cleared up my skin. 

In your life and line of work, what makes a 24-hour foundation so important?
I’m super active, so I need foundation that can be flexible and breathable with me. 

What’s your favorite day-to-night makeup trick?
Add a set of luscious lashes!

If you could spend 24 hours in any city where would you go and what would you do?
Oh Lahaina, Maui. Snorkeling, sun and some good fish tacos.

What’s one unexpected thing you carry with you all day and all night?
Spare mascara spoolies. I use them to neaten my brows and tame my fly away hairs. I stash them everywhere! In all my purses, my bathroom cabinet, bedside drawers and even in my car.  

What’s your favorite day-to-night makeup trick?
I think a red lip instantly makes a look more glamorous. I like to keep the rest of my face pretty clean, just a good foundation and some mascara and let the lips make the statement.

In your life and line of work, what makes a 24-hour foundation so important?
My days on set are long and I like a foundation that stays put so I can worry less about that and more about my job. I like to be able to forget about what I look like and focus on the acting.

If you could give your teenage self one piece of beauty advice what would it be?
Leave your brows alone! I went through a phase of over tweezing them (didn’t we all?!) and I’m so lucky that they were able to grow back full and bushy.

If you could spend 24 hours in any city where would you go and what would you do?
Santa Teresa in Costa Rica. We’d spend a perfect day at the beach surfing and then have sushi at an amazing restaurant called Koji’s right in the jungle.

If you could give your teenage self one piece of beauty advice what would it be?
I wish I could tell my younger self that when it comes to flawless makeup, blending is key! Keep that in mind, darlings!

In your life and line of work, what makes a 24-hour foundation so important?
In my line of work, image is everything. As a beauty blogger and vlogger, I’m constantly caught in front of the camera, whether at a shoot in my apartment or a full photo shoot. With an active life on the go, I need a foundation that lasts and one that does so with benefits for my skin is a plus in my book!

What’s one unexpected thing you carry with you all day and all night?
My phone charger. I am known for being the FIRST one in the group with my phone dead.

What’s your favorite day-to-night makeup trick?
My day-to-night trick would be to simply add eyeliner and a bold lip over the day’s look and you’re a whole new woman!

If you could spend 24 hours in any city where would you go and what would you do?
If I could go anywhere for 24 hours, it would definitely be Bora Bora. It’s just so incredibly beautiful and I’d get so many cute beach photos!

What’s one unexpected thing you carry with you all day and all night?
I wouldn’t say it’s unexpected but I always have a phone charger with me. By the end of the day it saves me.

In your life and line of work, what makes a 24-hour foundation so important?
There are days where I have meetings all day followed by events at night and I want show to up with a fresh-looking face.

If you could give your teenage self one piece of beauty advice what would it be?
FILL IN YOUR BROWS! I have really light brows and I look back at photos where I have a super smoky eye but you can’t see my brows. 😂

What’s your favorite day-to-night makeup trick?
I love to change my lip to a bright color to mix things up.

If you could spend 24 hours in any city where would you go and what would you do? 
I would fly to Cape Town in South Africa and spend the day on an African safari.

In your life and line of work, what makes a 24-hour foundation so important? 
You want to look flawless all day, every day! Especially in our business when you never know when the perfect moment to snap a photo or video may pop up, it’s important to always be camera-ready.

What’s your favorite day-to-night makeup trick? 
Applying a cream pencil eyeliner on the eyelid and smudging it out for a smoky effect, and then adding on a bold lip.

If you could give your teenage self one piece of beauty advice what would it be?
Make sure to always wear sunscreen!

What’s one unexpected thing you carry with you all day and all night? 
Candy!

If you could spend 24 hours in any city where would you go and what would you do?
Costa Rica! It’s a very spiritually grounding place, and I love it to be able to connect to nature and God.

What’s one unexpected thing you carry with you all day and all night?
A pink highlighter! I am an avid reader, and I never know when I’ll come across a passage I want to remember!

If you could give your teenage self-one piece of beauty advice what would it be?
Beauty is nothing that can be given or taken away. Your uniqueness is empowering— and that is beautiful.

In your life and line of work, what makes a 24-hour foundation so important?
In and out of meetings it’s important for me to look and feel like myself—comfortable and confident. I don’t have the time or desire to reapply, so 24-hour foundation is imperative!

What’s your favorite day-to-night makeup trick?
A touch more mascara and a pop of color on my lips.

If you could spend 24 hours in any city where would you go and what would you do?
Florence, Italy with my mom and daughter! I would love to experience the history of the city that inspired me to travel—with the most important women in my life!

What’s one unexpected thing you carry with you all day and all night?
Red eye shadow I use as blusher.

In your life and line of work, what makes a 24-hour foundation so important?
I don’t have time to sit in front of the mirror reapplying makeup. Sometimes I’ll DJ for up to 6+ hours without a loo break.

What’s your favorite day-to-night makeup trick?
Highlighter and glitter eyeliner.

If you could give your teenage self one piece of beauty advice what would it be?
Use organic, non-perfumed face creams and face wash. I have really sensitive skin so if I use anything with chemicals or that’s unnaturally perfumed I break out. Also, my skin reacts badly to sugar and coffee so maybe don’t go down that slippery slope.

If you could spend 24 hours in any city where would you go and what would you do?
I’m dying to go to Japan. I’ve never been. I’d go on a major shopping spree in Tokyo and then check out all the seedy nightclubs from Gaspar Noe’s Enter the Void.

 

Thanks for traveling around the world with us—we hope you enjoyed the trip! The most important lessons we learned? A lipcolor change is the key to day-to-night beauty, Tokyo is about to fill up your Instagram feed and 24-hour foundation is THE key to getting a flawless complexion, then getting on with your day.
